All love to be solaced and to be in peace. To stay, calm and tranquil always, we need to be soothed. Prayer gives a soothing feeling; it is the way of being with God, for sharing what we have in our minds, like sorrows, happiness, anxieties and tensions. Most people assign prayer to a clergy or to a priest or nun, as they are supposed to be in prayers all the time. But, prayers is not an activity meant only for the religious people. All can pray, that is all can communicate with a deity. It is the invocation to get virtues, by that we can derive courage and strength of mind, with which life becomes more peaceful and comfortable.
Before commencing a day’s work, entrust all with God. We can invoke the deity for the power to be with us always while we are busy with our day’s schedule. He will guide us through the right way, He will protect us from any danger and He will guard us from committing a mistake. We can experience a peaceful day by the grace of the Almighty. Think of the day in the night and remember the God again thankfully. Prompt the children to begin and end their days with prayers; they will be deriving a self-confidence and self-esteem with that. Tension will be evaded as there is your Deity to stand for you and with you.
While thinking about prayer,some Biblical prayers are to be mentioned. First is the prayer of Jesus Christ, praying deeply worried about the coming crucifixion, even though, He prays, for the strength to fulfill the will of the Heavenly Father. It is surrendering our will to the will of God.
Next is the prayer of Mary Magdalene, she had shown the prayer through repentance. We may be sinners, but if we repent truly, we will be forgiven and God will hear our prayers.
The faith of the Centurion, who had approached Jesus to heal his servant, should be our model in our prayers. He strongly believed in Jesus and that faith was rewarded, his wish fulfilled.
While praying let us remember the words of Jesus,” Ask, and it will be given to you; Search, and you will find; Knock, and the door will be opened to you” [St.Mathew 7: 7]
